I have been so busy with recitals and work that I haven’t had much time lately for blogging or finishing all the many crafty projects I have been wanting to complete. This week should be a bit easier, so I am hoping to finish some of my fun crafts and catch up with all my blogging and online social network.
Here are a couple of recent crafts I wanted to share….I should mention that I am fairly new to the craft scene and pretty much everything I do is rather rough around the edges. But you know what they say, practice makes perfect!
This is my first ever attempt at embroidery. I didn’t follow a pattern, which may have been a mistake, but actually I like my sweet sampler. I also revamped an old match box into a special keepsake box.
And I love the prize ribbon look. So I decided to try to make my own. I found the ribbon at Target if you can believe it, in their birthday section. One was a girl birthday ribbon and the other was a boy birthday ribbon. I tried to customize them and make them my own.
I can’t wait to sport the blue one on 4th of July!
